Our discoveries create change for the global health of our people and environment.

  • Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome is a disorder that affects a woman's reproductive system. UQ Institute for Molecular Bioscience researchers are working to identify genetic links associated with developing MRKH.
  • A leading researcher focused on solving the problem of antimicrobial resistance will bring his expertise to The University of Queensland to help oversee the research of its largest institute.
  • Evolution may be responsible for a range of complex traits, including height and waist-to-hip ratio, and diseases such as schizophrenia, research from The University of Queensland shows. The findings improve understanding of how natural selection shapes human populations, and could lead to better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of complex diseases.
